1535 - Lyons: M. & G. Treschel, 1535. Woodcut, coloured, printed area 320 x 400mm. Centrefold reinforced on verso. An example of the Fries reduction of Wäldseemüller's modern map of Greece and the Balkans. Originally intended not for a Ptolemy edition but for a new 'Chronica mundi' being written by Wäldseemüller, his death c.1520 caused the project to be shelved, so the woodcuts were used to publish a smaller sized and therefore cheaper edition of the 'Geography'. On verso is a text surrounded by woodcut column decorations. ZACHARAKIS: 1830.
